A statement by Yakubu said: “Similarly, the list of all Presidential and Governorship candidates must be accompanied by the names of their running mates (i.e. Vice Presidential and Deputy Governorship candidates) without which the nomination is invalid.

All nominations must be uploaded to the portal on/or before the deadlines. The portal will automatically shut down at 6.00 pm (1800hrs) on Friday June 17th 2022 for national elections and 6.00 pm (1800hrs) on Friday July 15th 2022 for State elections.”
